I need one of those L ruler things.

Happy birthday KG. Was swell seeing you at Joan Jett. Quite a surprise, though every lesbian I know was there, so the surprise wore off quickly. And great to see the one who came from SF to see the show. She talked of her break-up, with shock that it came out of nowhere. That surprise dumping happens more often than people realize. She was the second person I talked to in that situation in as many days. There's that one-sidedness where the dumper is prepared, and keeping a secret for some time, so you two will never be on the same page. Probably has to do with trust. So we all nodded and commiserated and gave her a hug and I thought about how there was really nothing we could say because she already knew it would take time and there was no way to tell her how much. I guess gay marriage would have only made things worse.

And it's a good thing that senate vote to put a gay marriage ban in the constitution failed. Or did it? The whole point of that vote was to lose. To draw out the extreme right for the mid-term elections. How come no one exposed the plan on the senate floor?
"Moral indignation is jealousy with a halo." -H. G. Wells

I've thought up a good way of cleaning out the clutter we all accumulate from staying in the same home for more than a few years; pretend you're moving. Mentally pack up the belongings you're taking with you, and jettison the rest. This exercise might take a while.
